Growing up I was such a busy kid. From the moment I woke up until I went to bed there was always some fun to be had and so I always remember lunch as one of my favorite meals. Mostly the memorable lunches with my favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I remember the hot summers as a kid my sister and I would sit outside with our pb&j and a cold glass of milk. When I think about my girls I also want to make sure they are creating lasting memories. Lunch os one of those meals that I get to have a lot of fun with and it’s something my girls also enjoy being involved in.
Teaching them to be resourceful and creative we enjoy creating things in the kitchen. With our girls headed back to school this week we wanted to create something special with our own heart shaped version of peanut butter and jelly. We also included some of our other favorite things like yogurt and berries. We shopped at our local Target and got our favorite Smucker’s and Jif products on Cartwheel for 5% off.
Heart Shaped Lunchbox IdeaIngredients –
- Smucker’s Natural Strawberry Fruit Spread
- Jif Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/2 cup of Yogurt
- 2 Strawberries
- Lettuce and Tomatoes for small salad
Our girls also love salad so we topped a small salad with a cheese and cut out a heart she. It’s so simple and fresh and easy and fun. The peanut butter and jelly sandwich is totally unique and something my daughter enjoyed coming up with.
